Not Rush Limbaugh:
Don't give Haitians a penny, says rightwing US shock jock
Amid the rash of appeals for Haiti donations has come a call from one of the most prominent voices on the American right for people to hang on to their cash because Barack Obama might steal it.
Rush Limbaugh, the most popular radio talkshow host, who is sometimes described as the real leader of the Republican party, says Americans should not give a penny to a population struggling for survival after the earthquake.
But it's not Limbaugh's total and creepy callousness that's the issue here, it's the danger of massive cognitive dissonance on the part of some of the more deranged Canadian whingers, who now have to decide what part of their brain they'd like to listen to.
Consider, for example, one Maria "Dodo Can't Think" Nunes who, on the one hand, lurrrrrrves herself some Rush-bo, yet curiously still pleads for readers to donate to Haiti.
One wonders just how Maria is going to intellectually reconcile these two conflicting sentiments. I suspect it's not going to be pretty.
